Dear Little Grandmother -Postcard Friendship Friday #374
Today I celebrate the life of my precious 91-year old Grandma Gladys who has flown to heaven. She is no longer in pain, she can walk, see and laugh again. She is in a better place and she was ready to go and see her Beloved Vic--and to see Jesus. Ah, I miss her.
This postcard looks a lot like Grandma. What a dear, wonderful lady she was. One of the first dates my Beloved took me on was to meet Grandma and her family. She has been a part of my life for almost 35 years.
I see her in my home everywhere. Pictures she painted, odd pans and cutlery, the beautiful four-poster bed in the guest room, most of the things I have in the craft room... I think of her every day, and will always think of her every day.
I can hear her laughter, I can see her merry old eyes twinkling at me. She deeply loved my family--She brought joy into our lives with her wisdom, bubbles, crafts--and I smile as many hilarious memories flood into my mind. I am going to miss her so much. I am so grateful to have spent time with Grandma while her daughter was out of town a number of months ago. What a privilege to hear her stories, share her laughter and tend to her as she slept in her big easy chair.
Take a moment to cherish the people you love, my Friends. Life is short and each moment is a gift. Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, dear ones.
